Jennifer Buckman, Ph.D. is an active research scientist at the Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies and Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health, School of Arts and Sciences, working as part of a team of researchers to study the automatic physiological processes that interfere with conscious experience and support maladaptive lifestyle choices (e.g., drinking more than intended).

Changes in Cardiovascular Control Mechanisms Related to Binge Drinking during College: The goal of this grant is uncover the cumulative effects of binge drinking on integrated cardiovascular processes over two years and identify quantitative cardiovascular biomarkers of early drinking-related injury prior to the onset of frank illness.

Deconstructing the Temporal and Multi-Level Influences of the Baroreflex Mechanism on Alcohol Use Behaviors: This career awards will provide salary support plus research funds to examine the baroreflex mechanism’s temporal nature (in-the-moment versus across time) and multi-level influence on physiology, cognition, and behavior.

Project IMPACT: In-the-Moment Protection from Automatic Capture by Triggers: This randomized clinical trial assesses an “app”-based breathing intervention (added to behavioral treatment as usual) to reduce risk for relapse. Multi-PI: M. Bates
